The road to success is always filled with learning. You have to learn from those who have been there, you need to hear their stories, how they did it, why they failed in the areas that they did, what made them stick to the dream that ultimately became a reality and their advices. All of these put together gives you a good spring board from which to launch.
This is the focus of this series – The Things Successful People Do and Why They Work.
- Plan – Don’t Have A Back Up Plan!
You may not agree with this just yet but that is ok. Let me ask you, whenever you enter a vehicle or you are driving, why do you ensure that you do not get involved in an accident? Because death could possibly result and you know there is no second chance so you make sure that NOTHING can go wrong. What if we apply the same mindset to our Dreams or Business? Most times in the pursuit of our dreams and goals, we draw up back up plans and instead of focusing all our energies on “THE PLAN”, we keep our eyes on a safety plan.
It is similar to the comfort zone syndrome, because we still find comfort in our current state or the believe that the backup plan would sustain us, we water down our drive and dedication at pursuing that dream but if there are no backup plan, I am quite sure you will put in all you got to ensure that nothing can go wrong.
Without a backup plan, you’ll work much harder to ensure your primary plan works, and you would be sure to get it.
Ask yourself this “Do I have what it takes to be remarkably successful?”
Be totally committed to your dream and don’t rely on a safety net.
To be continued…
Have a great day ahead.
